Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Cats in litter box... together?
Hi, my two 6 month old cats have been having a weird litterbox issue. Recently I I've been catching them urinating in the box together. A little background, I just finally managed to move both litterboxes to the basement. We have one large and one small one, and they both seem to prefer the big one (except Lily, who is fastidious sometimes likes separate boxes for #1 and #2). Both boxes are kept super clean.
Well, the last few days I went down there right before dinner and discovered them both voiding in the large box at the same time. Mind you, the second box is about three feet away. Neither of them covered, but neither of them seemed visibly upset by the other.
Can anybody give me a clue why this might be? Is this at all common with cats, and does it sound like there's any kind of behavioral issue or conflict I need to be aware of? My only alternative explanation for what it could be is that they know I'm about to lock them out of the basement for 5 minutes so I can prepare their food, so they wanted to hurry up and go, and they both wanted to go in the Big Box?
What the heck? Help!
